Preventing the spread and promoting the early detection and proper treatment of infectious diseases is a top priority for Project HOPE.
We began addressing tuberculosis (TB) disease in Kazakhstan in 1993, piloting the use of the Directly Observed Treatment Short-Course (DOTS) strategy for TB control. With the support of United States Agency for International Development (USAID) for nine years, Project HOPE has implemented the largest and most comprehensive regional TB control programs in the Central Asian Republics. In 2006, we expanded our TB programs into Africa, with programs to address TB and TB/HIV in Malawi and Namibia.
In 1996, we began incorporating HIV prevention education into our reproductive health programs in Malawi, and have provided HIV prevention education to school children in Russia and Ukraine since 2005. Currently, we provide care and support to Orphans and Vulnerable children in Africa and continue to expand HIV prevention efforts around the globe.
The successful implementations of our health education and humanitarian assistance programs have been highlighted in journal articles, applied in case studies, presented at international global health conferences and developed into posters and other materials that demonstrate our program results.
